CES 2023, Announcements, News and Rumors

A few hours before the opening of CES in Las Vegas, we revealed the news and rumors about the products and technologies of this 2023 edition. Processors, graphics cards, foldable screens or electric vehicles, Phonandroid has it in stock.

New Year’s Eve is traditionally followed by a liver attack and hangover, but also by a geek event, maybe even the World Tech Event. Of course I want to talk Consortium Electronics Show (CES) taking place in Las Vegas from January 5 to 8, 2023. More than a consumer electronics show, it’s really a huge barnum where the giants of computing, telecom, HiFi or video interact with start-ups from all over the world.

More than 3,100 exhibitors, 173 countries represented, 4,700 media registered, approximately 200,000 visitors crossing 250,000 m² (about forty football pitches) of the Las Vegas Convention and World Trade Center (LVCC)… The CES statistics are staggering. Beyond a company’s spectacular technological showcase, it’s really about geopolitics. Small companies and large multinationals feel the pulse of technology… and spy on competitors, fish for information.

In this year 2023, it is not the show of all superlatives, it is the show of renewal. After two years of the health crisis, social distancing, marketing teams are eager to show the progress made and outperform their rivals. However, the recovery is still dizzying. In January 2022, CES welcomed only 40,000 visitors, far from the usual number. A lot of information is under NDA (non-disclosure agreements), and announcements will be made from January 5 to 8, 2023 and market participants will make announcements prior to CES. There is also a wealth of information on household items like this Samsung refrigerator with 32” screen.

Smartphones and tablets

Sandwiched between the European IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin) aimed at the general public and the professional MWC (Mobile World Congress) in Barcelona, ​​​​​​the show in Las Vegas has never been a strategic place and moment for the sector of smartphones and tablets. However, we will remain focused on the Samsung and LG stands. The latter was announced at the end of the year a image module from 4x zoom to 9x zoom.

CPUs and GPUs

Despite the growth of telework, the personal computer market is experiencing a slowdown. The founders of AMD, Intel or Qualcomm probably have surprises in store for CES 2023 in Las Vegas. Nowadays, rumors are replacing certainties. January 10 is reportedly the unofficial launch date for the new Ryzen processors based on the Zen 4 architecture. Ryzen 7000 non-X, not overclockable, will be slower but consume less energy (only 65W of TDP) and be greedy on the wallet. This could also be an opportunity for AMD to enter the mobile chip market… Graphics cards are nothing new.

In this regard, NVidia will also create a key tone but completely dematerialized and pre-recorded. The GPU specialist foundry has officially announced the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. Information on the classic 40 series that has already been released, the first laptops are shown.

This year, Intel has no stance as marketing is monstrous i9-113900 KS clocked at 6 GHz ! Therefore, the founder of Santa Clara must rely on partner builders. Therefore it is on the side ofAcer, Asus, Dell, Lenovo and MSI who will need to lend an ear and an eye.


Asus has unveiled its new Republic Of Gamers PCs, including the 16- and 18-inch Strix. They are equipped with 13 Intel processorse generation (up to i9-13980HX), from RTX 40XX graphics card (including 4090) and a mini LED panel (2560 x 1600 pixels @240Hz). The Strix SCAR 17 and G17 will also benefit from the new Nvidia RTX but without the mini-LED panel but with processors AMD Ryzen 9 Zen 4. The “light” gaming range The Zephyrus has been refreshed and also takes advantage of the mini-LED display with the latest AMD and Intel CPUs or 40XX GPUs..

The Samsung Galaxy Book2 Go was announced at the end of 2022 but CES 2023 will definitely be the chance to see and touch it. Note that the second generation of these laptops are not powered by AMD or Intel processors but by Qualcomm. The Galaxy Book2 Go is a 14” IPS Full HD equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c+ Gen 3. Its marketing should take place from January 20, 2023.

Foldable, pivotable, rollable, transparent panels of all types and all sizes will surely be one of the best at CES 2023. IFA 2022 in Berlin has sharpened our enthusiasm for gaming screens, this should be confirmed by Consortium Electronics Show. According to rumors, Dell should reveal a panel characterized by a Excellent 480Hz refresh rate, overclockable to 500Hz ! A madness for esports.

For its part, Samsung wants to create a sensation by presenting a foldable and extendable screen. Faced with the hegemony of its compatriots in OLED and the small tackle of LG Rollable, the South Korean giant wants to show its leadership in rollables… and conventional products. Samsung plans to lift the veil on its screen Odyssey Neo G9. The specifications are unusual: a “small” 57-inch, 8K panel with mini LED technology with a refresh rate of 240 Hz. In the absence of holography, immersiveness must be there.


Crisis, sobriety or simple energy transfer, heat engines have become the pets of our time. Car manufacturers are converting their factories to hybrid or even 100% electric when some are trying other methods. volkswagen must present a prototype of an electric car. Right now, we don’t know if it will be a small city car, an SUV or a van.

We must not neglect the French as a group Stelantis (Citroen, DS, Fiat, Jeep, Peugeot).
